Tigers take down Newman

The Princeton Tigers scored a 42-35 win over Three Rivers Conference rival Sterling Newman Friday night at Prouty Gym.

Casey Pierre (0:54 at 182) and Dylan Williams (2:00 at 220) celebrated Senior Night with wins via pinfalls for the Tigers. Tyler Wood (106) also stuck his man at 2:30.

The Tigers other four decisions came via forfeits.

Princeton also took on LaSalle-Peru, dropping a 48-33 decision. Drew Pranka got the Tigers going with a 3-0 decision at 160. Luke Hoffman (4:49) and Pierre (1:24) followed with pinfalls at 170- and 182-pound weight classes, respectively. Dylan Williams scored a first-period pinfall at 0:18 at 220.

Luke Marselle scored his second forfeit win at 113. Wood also received a forfeit win.

“It was a great win over Newman. We are starting to turn the corner with our technique and aggressiveness. We won the matches that we needed to win,” PHS coach Steve Amy said. “Against L-P we wrestled well and were in the dual until the end.”

Princeton will be joined by Mendota and St. Bede at Saturday’s Polo 1A Regional. The Hall/Putnam County co-op moves up to 2A this year, competing at the LaSalle Regional.

Notes: Saturday’s Super Dual Meet at Putnam County was canceled due to the weather.
